Are you tired of Christmas shopping already? It is only the first day of December, but the race to get the best holiday gifts is already on. Every time we talk to our friends, we feel like we’re behind on our shopping. Well, thanks to Target, we’re going to be able to catch up on our Christmas shopping – all in one day!

You might recall from last year, Target had a sale on gift cards. No, not every gift card sold at the checkout line, just Target gift cards. Still, it is very rare that we see gift cards go on sale without a stipulation (AKA the common buy a $50 gift card, get a $10 gift card free setup seen at other retailers). This weekend only, for one day, Target is offering a discount on their store gift cards.

On Sunday, December 2, 2018, Target gift cards will be 10% off. The best part? You don’t have to leave your house if you don’t want to. This discount is offered in stores and online at on Sunday. Shoppers do not need a coupon or promotion code to get this discount, it will be applied at check out.

Now, you can’t buy an unlimited amount of Target gift cards, there is a cap. You can only purchase $300 in Target gift cards per household. While there is a maximum, there is also a minimum, but it is very small. Shoppers need to spend at least $10 to get this 10% discount on Target gift cards.
